The environmental review process, outlined in the diagram below, began with a Notice of Preparation (NOP) issued on March 15, 2013 along with a public Scoping Meeting held on April 10, 2013. A summary of the public comments responding to the NOP can be downloaded using the following link: NOP Public Comments – 2013.
Following the Scoping Meeting, a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was prepared to analyze potential impacts of any land use changes proposed as part of this project. The Draft EIR is available for review on the Department of City Planning website (click on “Environmental Review” and then “Draft EIR”). The 60-day review period for the Draft EIR closed on June 5, 2017. The Department is currently in the process of responding to comments received and preparing a Final EIR.
